The problem with the '52 Texans was that they had no identity and no talent. After an unsuccessful 1951 season in New York City as the New York Yankees (weird, right?), the team moved to Dallas in 1952. However, they lost the first half of their games by an average of 20 points and simply couldn't compete with other NFL teams. In fact, it got so bad that with five games remaining on their schedule the NFL took control of the team and moved them out of Dallas. They ended up playing their final home game—which, miraculously, they won because the Chicago Bears sent their second-string players to match up against them—in Akron, Ohio. It was a strange season for the Texans to say the least.
